Family Bucket List Challenge

The AliKats Bucket List Challenge has inspired me to think about what I would put on my bucket list. We love being outside and traveling, having a young family makes the planning all the more important but it doesn’t stop us from getting out there! It might take us a few years to tick these…

A Family Adventure in Denmark
